Turkey Leg Hut Files for Bankruptcy: A Tragic End to a Popular Houston Restaurant

In the 127th Judicial District Court in Harris County, Texas, on Tuesday, March 26, Nakia Holmes announced that the Turkey Leg Hut had filed for bankruptcy. This news came after a judge ordered Holmes and her former co-owner Lyndell Price to pay over $900,000 to a former business partner.

The recent fire at the restaurant’s business office and ongoing legal issues have caused financial troubles for the Turkey Leg Hut. As a result of these challenges, a receiver was appointed in a court hearing to handle the restaurant’s assets and funds to help pay off debts.

With debts of $2 million in state tax revenue and a lawsuit from former business partner Steve Rogers, the Turkey Leg Hut made the difficult decision to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. This move will put an end to collection efforts while the restaurant continues discussions with financial stakeholders to reposition the business.

The Turkey Leg Hut opened in 2016 and has faced controversy and legal battles since its inception. Despite these challenges, it remains a popular spot in Houston’s community.
